Honouring the Woman, Life, Freedom movement in Iran, five Iranian women who have experienced Australia’s detention regime share poetry and unveil realities of gender-based violence in pursuit of justice and equality. 

Curated by Dr Saba Vasefi, Writing In Resistance, supports women and non-binary emerging writers to use poetry as a way to defy violence, racism and discrimination.

Hosted by Janice Petersen, with poetry readings and Q&A.

Presented with support from AGNSW, Red Room Poetry, Multicultural NSW, Ades Foundation, Create NSW and Australia Council for the Arts.
